Nellie with parents and family
cw nellie grant w family.jpg

Ullyses and Julia Grant had 4 children, but it was common knowledge that his 3rd child and only daughter was his favorite- no small thing to a man who doted on all of them to the point of worship. I bumped into a story on Ellen " Nellie's " short stint as The Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe ", in an old newspaper, which of course sent me off on another search- Nellie Grant.

I found my way here while researching a musket that I bought locally yesterday. I was told that it has been in a Tennessee family fir a "long time". It is a 1816 dated Harpers Ferry musket in pretty good shape. The percussion conversion does look crude at best {non arsenal}.

How badly does this conversion hurt the collectability? Just a "wall hanger" with little value at this point? 20161030_153357.jpg ...

Who said: "Well, you may say your prayers and get ready to die, for these are the only soldiers I can spare," and what group was he talking to?
